Tom Pernice Jr. was first off this morning and played by himself, zipping around the course in a 1-under-71.
"It was quite special,'' Pernice said. "I had my caddie to talk to. But to be able to go play a course you love in a one-ball . . . it's not something you get the opportunity to do very often.''
His assessment of the conditions? Pernice said the pins weren't as difficult as they were Friday. "The wind's basically the same direction . . . You've got to pay attention out there and you have to putt well.''
